MasterPulse Over-ear headset can be both open and closed

— 9:06 AM on August 24, 2016

Along with the MasterMouse Pro L we covered yesterday, Cooler Master is also releasing a new headset: the MasterPulse Over-ear. Cooler Master already has a set of MasterPulse earbuds, but this new set of cans is an over-ear headset that uses a pair of 44-mm drivers.

The MasterPulse Over-ear has a unique feature that Cooler Master calls Bass FX. While we're used to cheesy bass boost EQ features on headphones, Bass FX is a pair of removable plastic panels on the sides of the headset. Installing the Bass FX panels closes off a mesh-like grating and turns the headphones from an open, bass-ported design into a closed design. Cooler Master says this configuration sacrifices some bass for a clearer, more balanced sound. Installing Bass FX should also reduce the amount of noise that both leaves and enters the headset.

Aside from Bass FX, the MasterPulse Over-ear has removable ear cups, a hidden microphone, and an in-line remote control. It uses a 3.5-mm combo jack that Cooler Master says should work with "most mobile devices." The company also includes an adapter to use the microphone with PCs. Cooler Master says this headset should be available now for $69.99.
